Since 1973, the Whitman-Walker Institute has worked toward building a society where all persons are seen for who they are, treated with dignity and respect, and afforded equal opportunity to health and wellbeing. Whitman-Walker is the nation’s oldest medical-legal partnership and provides support for LGBTQIA+ communities, including immigrant members of those communities. Whitman-Walker’s transgender and gender non-conforming patient population has grown from just 200 patients to more than 2,000 in less than a decade, fueling a rise in the need for name and gender-change services and surgery referrals. Thanks especially to the hard work and dedication of Brandon Boxbaum, Axinn is now partnering with Whitman-Walker to provide pro bono advice to the Institute’s patients. Axinn celebrated the first court order granting a name change petition facilitated by Brandon on December 20, and looks forward to continued partnership with Whitman-Walker.
